We stay on the cutting edge of manufacturing - it is at the heart of our commitment to quality. We do a majority of our certification testing in-house, allowing us to develop faster and with greater accuracy.
Our in-house world-class prototyping center offers our engineers the ability to prototype and iterate continuous improvements in their design work through out the design process. With the latest prototyping machines built to support production grade parts, we can create prototypes so our engineers and industrial designers can touch and feel a product before it goes to production. Our Prototype Team is made up of experts who have worked in aerospace for decades and collaborate with our engineers to design a streamlined product with ease of maintenance in mind.
Possessing an in-house flammability lab allows LIFT to conduct fire tests listed in the scope of accreditation on materials and components used in our products. Our lab is capable of 28.853(a), 25.853(d), Bunsen Burner, Heat Release, and Smoke Density flammability testing. It also supports TSO C127b and installation requirements.
Dynamic Test Sled
On-time delivery is one of our top priorities, so building a state of the art 16g Dynamic Sled at our facility was a logical investment. With the ability to plan the when, the how, and the frequency of our tests, it allows us to meet deadlines without having to test through a third-party facility.
The test sled reaches 16g in less than 1/10 second. To support these kinds of loads, the sled sits on a concrete reaction block 5' deep with shear lugs over 8' deep. The construction and installation was a big undertaking, watch below to see LIFT’s Development Center built in high speed!
